Taxi Dashboard Lucky Figurines

The taxi had these cartoon-like lucky figurines on his dashboard.  Lest you think the driver was a Nazi, note that the 'swastika' symbol predates its Nazi usage and is actually a quite ancient symbol dating back to the Indus Valley Civilizations and Paleolithic Europe.  In Asia, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism, still use the symbol to represent wealth, prosperity and auspiciousness.
